Holt Homers As Red Sox Beat Winless Orioles (0-8), 5-1

The Baltimore Orioles may be flying north to Camden Yards without a single Grapefruit League victory. The Red Sox handed the Birds their 8th defeat without a win today, 5-1 in Sarasota. Brock Holt started the scoring with a solo HR in the first, and 23-year old SS prospect Marco Hernandez doubled twice (his third and fourth two-baggers of the Spring) to pace The Carmine Hose. Lefty starter Roenis Elías hurled two scoreless innings—striking out two. Boston moves to 4-3 on the Spring, and they take on the Pirates next on Wednesday.
